The first CC Sabathia appearance in the MLB was in the 1998 Draft, where he was picked 20th overall by the Cleveland Indians. Although he was selected for the 2000 US Olympic Team roster, he was not able to take part in the prestigious Games because he was called up by his MLB team.
In 2001, Sabathia was the youngest player in the league but still managed to place third in win-loss percentage, sixth in wins, and seventh in strikeouts. He also finished second in the AL voting for rookie of the year.
In 2007, a CC Sabathia appearance included his 1,000th career strikeout, and he was also named to the American League All-Star team for the third time. In September of the same year, Sabathia became the youngest pitcher to have 100 career wins since 1993. The next month, he won the Players Choice Award for Outstanding AL Pitcher and led his team to their first AL Central Division Championship since 2001. He also won the 2007 American League Cy Young Award and became one of the only two Cleveland Indians pitchers to ever win the award. Because of his pitching prowess, CC Sabathia won the Warren Spahn Award, which is given to the best left-handed pitcher in the Majors.
In 2008, he became part of the Milwaukee Brewers.
**CC Sabathia Speaker**
With his impressive resume as a starting pitcher, his experiences in the league are probably the best CC Sabathia speaker topics you can have at your next corporate function. But having come into the league at such a young age, you can be sure Sabathia’s perspective on Major League Baseball is unique and inspiring.
**CC Sabathia Appearance**
A CC Sabathia appearance in a July 2008 game against the Cincinatti Reds gave the pitcher his second home run of the season. It also made him the third pitcher in history to hit a home run in both leagues in the same season. This CC Sabathia appearance also made him the first to accomplish such a feat since 1970.
**CC Sabathia Endorsement**
The CC Sabathia endorsement reaches beyond Major League Baseball. Sabathia is well known and well-respect for his endorsement of Little League Baseball in urban areas where he helps bring the ideals of sportsmanship and teamwork to America’s youths.
